Marquette, MI – DocuMonday presents a screening of “Pond Hockey” on Monday, February 6 at 7:00 pm in the Peter White Public Library Community Room.
The pond is where hockey was born—under the open sky—where the ice is gritty and so is the play. For generations, rinkrats have grown up on outdoor ice. But, there are new climate-controlled arenas in every town, and that’s where the kids go to practice year-round now. The frozen ponds are losing their inhabitants.
Pond Hockey examines the changing culture of sports through insightful interviews with rink rats and hockey legends like Wayne Gretzky and Neal Broten alike.
The film won the “Best of Fest” award at the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Film Festival and “Audience Award” at the Landlocked International Film Festival.
“Pond Hockey” was released in 200, is rated PG and runs for 82 minutes.
DocuMonday is sponsored by the Friends of the Peter White Public Library and features award winning feature length documentaries at no admission charge.
